Last year I had one too many encounters with students (both grad and undergrad) who insisted on texting, emailing, or surfing during my classes (not big lecture classes, mind you).

We’ve discussed some tactics to get your company better engaged with social media. Lest you think there’s a limit to how you can connect with business and customer facing audiences, we’ve assembled this list of more than 35 companies who are experimenting with social media in a host of different ways.

Building a Learner Centered Syllabus by Kristina Kauffman I was fortunate to have many wonderful professors during my undergraduate years, but I do not recall receiving a syllabus that contained much more than the name of the class, contact information for the professor, the text, reading assignments and lecture topics.

In short, they were not learner centered.
